Mercedes-Benz has announced full details on the 2012 CLS 63 AMG model.
New for the CLS 63 is now AMG's 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine, which replaces the outgoing naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V8.
The new 5.5 liter biturbo unit features a peak output of 410 kW (557 PS/550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package. The standard engine configuration is rated at 386 kW (525 PS / 521 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Both units are mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission.
Fuel economy on the standard CLS 63 AMG now comes in at under 10 liter/100 km (a noteworthy achievement) - with a 9.9 liters per 100 km rating on the European cycle (NEDC).
That represents a remarkable 32 percent improvement in fuel-economy over the predecessor's 6.3 liter unit with an output of 378 kW (514 PS/510 bhp) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. That new fuel-economy rating comes by means of a stop/start system, engine technology such as piezo injectors and an aluminum crankshaft, as well as the use of aluminum panels in the body.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is 4.4 seconds for the standard model and 4.3 seconds for the CLS 63 with the AMG Performance package. The standard variant has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The CLS 63 AMG comes with 3 drive modes: 'S' (Sport), 'S+' (Sport plus) and 'M' (Manual) and features AMG Ride Control suspension for a smoother, more exact ride quality with 3 modes of its own: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The 2012 CLS 63 AMG comes standard with high-performance LED headlights, AMG light-alloy wheels in a new triple-spoke design with 255/35R19 and 285/30R19 tires front and rear, respectively.
The AMG Performance package also offers a ceramic high-performance composite braking system, carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trims elements, door sills with illuminated AMG logo, carbon-fiber spoiler lip for the boot and red brake calipers, a seperate set of 19-inch light alloys in a double 5-spoke design and, aside from the aforementioned performance Boost, the package includes a top speed limit bumped up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Prices in Germany for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG start at €115,846.50 including 19 percent VAT. The AMG Performance package rings in at €7735 (VAT included).

All-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class revealed
Mercedes-Benz has officially released photos and details on the upcoming 2012 CLS-Class which will make its debut at the Paris motor show in October.
In these official photos we now get to see the design of the 2012 CLS-Class in its entirety. The flared wheel arches along with the broad shoulder lines and a flattened nose give the CLS a far more muscular look than its sleeker predecessor.
New technology on the CLS-Class includes the LED headlamps, which feature a total of 71 individual lights. The lights are split into three sections, with the upper set forming the turn indicator, the middle serving as a low beam side light which also works when the high beams are on. There are the headlights themselves which do the night lighting.
Inside is an interior finish done with some human touches. The wrap-around dash goes from door to door and holds the instrument panel and display screen. There are also matte galvanized vents and an analogue clock. The handcraft is featured in the stitched seat covers as well as in the dashboard and Mercedes-Benz has gone through the trouble of preshrinking the leather it uses on the CLS so it won't tighten up in the heat.
High-gloss wood panels are also embedded inside the cabin - on the dash, center console and door linings. Buyers have a choice of brown burl walnut or black ash.
What Mercedes-Benz hasn't yet announced is which power plants will make it under the bonnet of the CLS. But we can expect the usual suspects - a 250 CDI with 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp), a 350 CDI with 265 PS (195 kW / 261 hp), a 3.5-liter V6 with 306 PS (225 kW / 301 hp) and a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 with 435 PS (320 kW / 429 hp). Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive system will likely be made available on most of the torque-ier models.
We can expect those engine details to be made public once the 2012 CLS-Class debuts at the Paris motor show which runs October 2 - 17, 2010.

Mercedes CLS-Class review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mercedes/cls-class/saloon/review
There were plenty of people who doubted Mercedes-Benz' ability to successfully combine the looks and drivability of a coupé with the practicality of a saloon. They shouldn't have done... The CLS didn't just impress all those who saw it, it inspired an entire new class of rival and copycat cars, including the Audi A5 Sportback, the Audi A7 Sportback and the Volkswagen Passat CC.
This is the second generation of the car. It gets an even bolder design and totally new range of engines.
